CamBor

13.5-0-0

A water soluble crystalline magnesium, calcium nitrate and boron fertilizer (contains 13.5% nitrogen + 11.6% calcium + 3.8% magnesium + 0.2% boron)

Role of Calcium in the Plant:

  • Important to the structure and permeability of cell membranes
  • Helps prevent cell injury and necrosis
  • Is a determining factor in fruit quality
  • Delays ripening of fruit; extends storage life suppressing ethylene production
  • Reduces storage rot

Role of Magnesium in the Plant:

  • Forms nucleus of chlorophyll molecule
  • Essential for lush, green growth
  • Helps strengthen the plant’s natural resistance to disease and stress
  • Necessary for phosphate uptake
  • Crucial to protein synthesis

Role of Boron in the Plant:

  • Essential for pollen viability, seed set
  • Part of carbohydrate and nucleic acid metabolism
  • Promotes cell differentiation and maturity
  • Sugars transported in borate complexes
  • Enhances plant uptake of calcium, magnesium and potassium
  • Promotes synthesis of cytokinins and ensures translocation of auxins
  • Promotes root tip initiation

Advantages of CamBor

  • Crystalline - totally water soluble dissolving instantly and remaining in solution
  • Creates an acidic spray solution which promotes nutrient uptake
  • All nitrogen present in nitrate nitrogen form for quick uptake
  • Contains calcium for healthy cell wall development and promotes terminal growth
  • Contains an ideal ratio of calcium, nitrogen and boron for sound plant growth at critical stages
  • Free of sulphates and chlorides
  • Ideal for drip irrigation
  • Cost effective

Methods of Application

CamBor can be applied as a foliar treatment in a regular spray program or as a corrective spray. It is suitable for ground or aerial spraying. It can also be used in fertigation through an irrigation system, sprinkler or pivot.
